worst spell of 100+ degree heat was, of
course, during the terrible summer of
1980. During that season, many of us
saw more than 60 days, most of them
consecutive, of 100+ heat! And just last
year, about this time, we were suffering
from hot weather. Quanah, Vernon,
Crowell, Vernon, and Munday had
highs of 118 degrees one day!
How many times have we heard the
expression, "it's not the heat, it's the
humidity!" In Texas, the heat rarely
comes by itself; we have to add in that
Gulf air to make things miserable. The
more moisture you add to the air, the
hotter those lazy days of summer seem.
The "heat index" is a measurement of
how hot it really feels when you factor in
the humidity. Any time we see heat
index values exceed 105 (or for that mat-
ter when the temperature itself exceeds
105), we become extremely concerned
about heat stroke. During days of exces-
sive heat, drink plenty of water, take
several breaks, wear light-colored,
loose-fitted clothing, and wear a sun-
block or number 15 or higher. Also,
check on the elderly and make sure they
have either fans or properly working air
I am still predicting a fairly mild (by
Texas standards) summer this year.
Nevertheless, there are going to be hot
days, and we need to be prepared.
